    Got a bit of a gender typo there for Daniel Radcliffe. :)
    All of these sound great!

    • Beth

      (also, The Diviners would be a totally kickass movie)

        And yes – it would be so freaking scary – but YES!

    Hello, I’m a buyer and seller of books. I’m retired however I have read books such as Maze runner series, Divergent Trilogy, All of Terry Brooks books, Horns, Anne McCaffrey books, Fault in our Stars just to name a few. My question to you young folk does this make me an old fogy?

  • IAmSpartacus

    Sue me, but Fallen will be awful…………………come on, the books were awful! And even if it comes out decent, they’re just redoing what Twilight did (*ugh) and people have already had ENOUGH of that. I didn’t really like Matched nad i think people are tired of dystopian as well, but I don’t know. maybe it will turn out okay. Everything else looks great. Excited for Scorpio Races and the Diviners
